This seven-bedroom Bay Ridge home is big and beauteous, full of lovely detail and in wonderful condition. It’s at 237 77th Street, on a nice block with the R train fairly close at hand.
This one’s got curb appeal to burn, with its columned wraparound porch, front garden, arched upper windows, and arched dormer window up top.
It’s quite fetching in the inside as well, with details including crown moldings, original woodwork, pocket doors, built-ins, and stained and leaded glass.
The library is particularly sweet, with its wood-burning fireplace, wainscoting, built-in desk, drawers and bar, and fancy plasterwork ceiling.
The ground floor also holds a large entrance foyer, a formal dining room, a living room, a full bath and a laundry room. Then there’s the kitchen, which has a baby-blue eight-burner Viking stove with double ovens, and not one but two Liebherr refrigerators, side by side. There’s also a pantry, reputed to be large.
The second floor’s got a master bedroom with a dressing room and three other bedrooms plus a full bath. Up top are three more bedrooms and a full bath with a clawfoot tub.
There’s a private driveway and a garage. The biggest negative is the backyard, which is a slab of concrete.
The house looks to be in great shape, and the listing says the mechanicals are in “excellent condition,” with new electrical and copper plumbing throughout.
Listed by Stribling broker Violette Tonuzi, the house — which is being shown by appointment at an open house Sunday — is asking a not-inconsiderable $2.5 million. A house of similar size on the block at 221 sold for $1.85 million a year ago, for what that’s worth. But this is an awfully nice one. Like it?
